Labiaplasty in Naples, FL
Labial enlargement or asymmetry can be a source of embarrassment and physical discomfort for women of all ages. Even though the labia may be healthy and normal, some women find that their labia are longer or larger than they’d like. Procedures like labiaplasty can help rejuvenate the genital area for increased comfort and confidence. At the Aesthetic Surgery Center, we offer expert labiaplasty in Naples, FL, for women seeking vaginal rejuvenation.
What is Labiaplasty?
Women can be self-conscious about their labia for many different reasons. Some women are born with naturally large or elongated labia minora. Others experience changes in the labia after pregnancy and childbirth, due to hormonal changes and stretching of the tissues.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to reshape and tighten the labia minora (the inner lips) in the genital area. This procedure reduces the size of the labia which may become overly large due to genetics, aging, or childbirth. It can also correct uneven skin edges and asymmetry, improving the area’s overall aesthetic appearance and symptoms related to an enlarged labia.
Labia come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors, and these characteristics can change over time. It is recommended that women wait until they have completed their families to undergo the labiaplasty procedure. This helps ensure long-lasting results.
The Labiaplasty Consultation
More and more women are choosing labiaplasty to improve their quality of life. If you want to find out if you’re a candidate for this popular procedure, come to the Aesthetic Surgery Center in Naples, FL, for a consultation. This is the first step in the process.
The surgeon will begin by obtaining some initial information on why you are seeking labiaplasty. This is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have or to address any concerns.
During your one-on-one meeting, the surgeon will review your medical history and conduct a physical examination to make sure that you are healthy enough for surgery. You and the surgeon will cover the steps needed for preparation, what to expect on the day of surgery, and what the recovery process will be like in full detail.
Labiaplasty for Physical Comfort
Women sometimes choose labiaplasty solely for cosmetic reasons and their own self-esteem, but most labiaplasty patients are also looking to increase their physical comfort with the surgery. An enlarged labia is not just a cosmetic issue, but a source of physical discomfort.
A large or long labia can rub, chafe, or bulge. Women who struggle with an enlarged labia often cannot wear fitted clothing without embarrassment and may even find doing so uncomfortable. Exercise can be challenging, since the labia may rub and chafe. An enlarged labia can also cause pain during sex and make intimate situations uncomfortable and embarrassing.
Labiaplasty can correct all of these issues and allow a woman to lead a more comfortable, active life. Labia problems affecting a woman’s sex life and ability to exercise or wear the clothing she wants can take both a physical and emotional toll, even affecting relationships in some cases. After surgery, most women feel much more confident and free to lead their preferred lifestyle.

The Labiaplasty Procedure
Our Aesthetic Surgery Center team is well-versed in various advanced surgical techniques that may be used to perform labiaplasty, depending on the anatomy of the labia and the desires of the patient. Our surgeons will use their meticulous surgical skills to achieve improvement both aesthetically and functionally for their patients.
Labiaplasty is performed on an outpatient basis under twilight anesthesia or oral sedation. Once you have been sedated, an injection of lidocaine will be given into each side of the labia majora to numb the area and provide pain relief during surgery.
During the procedure, the surgeon trims excess tissue and contours the labia to create a smaller and more aesthetically-pleasing labia minora. Though the labia can change somewhat even after labiaplasty surgery, the results are considered permanent.
The labiaplasty procedure typically takes an hour to perform and you will be given time to recover in the office before being sent home.
The Labiaplasty Recovery Process
Most patients experience mild swelling and bruising during the first 7-10 days after surgery. Patients are prescribed medications to make the recovery more comfortable. However, most patients find the downtime manageable and worth the excellent results of the surgery.
Depending on the nature of their job, patients can usually go back to work within 1 week. Women who work in physical jobs may need to take more time off from work, which is something to consider if you are interested in labiaplasty.
Labiaplasty costs are generally about $4,500 to $7000. Many factors go into setting a surgeon’s fee, including surgical materials and the facilities used.
Though most activities can be resumed within a week following labiaplasty, patients should postpone sexual activity for about 4-6 weeks.
During surgery, a local anesthetic is administered prior to surgery for complete comfort throughout the process. In the recovery stage, you may be given medications to help with any discomfort, but over-the-counter meds usually do the trick.
Labiaplasty does have its risks, just like any other surgery. A common risk is the formation of a prominent scar, which may cause both physical and psychological side effects.
Other potential risks include infection, bleeding, or pain that lasts for more than one week following surgery. There’s also the possibility of an unsatisfactory labiaplasty result for a variety of reasons.
These are rare complications involving this kind of surgery and are reduced when a skilled surgeon performs the operation. During your consultation, our experts will thoughtfully listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure.
While many women seek labiaplasty to improve the appearance of their genital area and regain confidence, others do it to improve their overall comfort and quality of life. It is a highly personal decision.
Loss of sensation may occur following surgery as part of the normal healing process and should go away when the swelling goes down. However, labiaplasty does not affect long-term sensitivity or sexual arousal.
Labiaplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure. This means that, for the most part, it will not be covered by insurance.
